Delta College dedicates Horticulture Center

San Joaquin Delta College President Kathy Hart said it was the perfect day to dedicate the next project in a series of improvements at the college as she cut the ribbon signaling the opening of of the new state-of-the-art Horticulture Center Tuesday afternoon.

It's open to the public each Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and will be open the same hours this Saturday for a "weekend sale".
